Our Best Defense
Infinity® Air Purifier
Indoor air circulates through a home’s return air ducts, into the heating/cooling system, then back into the home’s living areas. It is full of tiny particles from both natural and manmade sources such as pollen, dander, mold, tobacco smoke, exhaust and select viruses and bacteria. The largest of these particles settle on interior surfaces and appear as dust.
Smaller particles also settle, but become airborne again with the slightest disturbance. The Infinity air purifier is installed on or near the furnace/air handler of your home comfort system to help capture airborne particles that circulate throughout your home. Capturing these particles keeps the equipment components clean, and more importantly, helps reduce particles from the air you breathe. Because your indoor air is under constant attack, you need an effective defense – the kind you get with the Infinity air purifier.
Why the Carrier Infinity Air Purifier Matters
As part of a strategy for slowing the spread of infectious disease in your home, the Infinity air purifier should be considered essential. Featuring our patented Captures & Kills® technology, the Infinity air purifier offers proven, third-party tested effectiveness with a 99% inactivation of select captured viruses and germs when used as instructed,1 including:
- Human influenza
- Common cold surrogate
- Bacteria that causes strep throat
Here’s How it Works
Our Infinity air purifier treats the air flowing through your HVAC system’s air handler using a three-step, charge/capture/kill process:
The purifier creates a “cloud” of electrically charged ions that attach themselves to airborne dust, pollen, viruses, germs and other particles as they pass through.
The ionized particles are pulled toward an oppositely charged, pleated MERV 15 rated filter and captured at an extremely high rate, similar to how a magnet attracts metal shavings.
Captured airborne microbes remain on the pleated filter instead of recirculating back into the home and are subjected to an intense electric field. There, 99% of select viruses and bacteria are inactivated.
The Infinity air purifier has demonstrated effectiveness against the murine coronavirus, based on third-party testing (2020) showing a >99% inactivation, which is a virus similar to the human novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) that causes COVID-19. Therefore, the Infinity air purifier can be expected to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 when used in accordance with its directions for use. Third-party testing (2012, 2007) also shows ≥99% inactivation for the type of virus that causes common colds, Streptococcus pyogenes and human influenza. Airborne particles must flow through your HVAC system and be trapped by the MERV 15 Infinity filter to be inactivated at 99%. Learn how it works at Carrier.com/purifier.
MERV is a filter efficiency standard ranging from 1 to 16 (higher MERV = higher efficiency). The Infinity air purifier achieves a MERV 15 rating based on third-party testing (2012) showing 95% of particles size 1.0 to 3.0 microns captured and 85% of particles size 0.3 to 1.0 microns captured
